THE WAR IS NOT OVER

Don't miss attending this historic gathering on the one-year anniversary of NATO's occupation of Kosovo. Play a role in ending the ongoing sanctions against Yugoslavia.

The International Action Center initiated a Commission of Inquiry into U.S./NATO War Crimes in Yugoslavia last July 31. Former Attorney General Ramsey Clark brought 19 counts of war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes against peace against the leaders of the U.S. and NATO countries. We intended this effort to serve as a tool to stop wars before they start and prevent future violations of human rights.

Most of all, we want to hold the most powerful criminals accountable for their acts.

Many have joined to build this international movement. This June 10, former Canadian foreign minister James Bisset, Spanish member of parliament Angeles Maestro Martin, president of the African Association of Writers Charles Pascal Tolno, Italian peace leader Raniero LaValle, Millions for Mumia national coordinator Monica Moorehead, Native American Movement leader Dennis Banks, former German Admiral Elmar Schmaehling, former first lady of Greece Margarite Papandreau, former Haitian Ambassador to the UN Ben Dupuy, representatives of the movement to end U.S. bombing of Vieques in Puerto Rico and others who have spoken, written and acted against the U.S.-led NATO war of aggression will be there.

The IAC initiated a movement that has encouraged or inspired thousands to expose NATO crimes and show solidarity with Yugoslavia. From Oslo to Berlin to Belgrade to Kiev to Athens to Sydney, in 24 cities in 14 countries there have been tribunal hearings. Lawyers from Canada, Greece and Russia have tried to bring similar charges against NATO before the Hague Tribunal. Lawyers from Britain, Italy, Greece, Germany and others have sued their own governments.

The June 10 International War Crimes Tribunal will build upon the evidence presented at the Inquiry hearings on U.S./NATO war crimes held since throughout the world. It will have slides, videos and documented testimony of these crimes.

Because of the dominant U.S. role in the Balkan conflict and especially in the air war against Yugoslavia, the tribunal will focus primarily on U.S. criminal conduct, aided and abetted by other NATO members.

While we are not now holding the named criminals under lock and key, we see the tribunal process as a challenge to arrogant and arbitrary power. We are confident that it is the first step in a process that will continue to resonate throughout the NATO countries and among all the peoples targeted by the New World Order.

Show with your presence, your solidarity and your contributions that you stand shoulder to shoulder with us in this undertaking.
